Overview

Healthcare administrators are managers and executives in nursing homes, rehab centers, hospitals and clinics. These professionals manage doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers to improve the way healthcare is delivered. 

Why study the Healthcare Administration major at California Baptist University?

The healthcare administration major follows the competencies and guidelines set forth by the ACHE and the AUPHA that includes coursework and training in healthcare ethics, finance, strategic planning, information technology, management and leadership. This culminates in an internship in healthcare administration under the mentorship of an experienced healthcare leader in the field during the student's senior year.

Field experience opportunities allow students to become involved in the clinical nature of the health professions, further strengthening the theoretical concepts of holistic care covered in the classroom. Students develop a heart for service as they use their skills in healthcare to take part in a wide range of service opportunities on campus, and in the local and global communities.

Students can travel during the summer and serve in the health professions in various overseas locations. Some locations include Tanzania, China and the Philippines. To prepare for participation in Global Health Engagement, students will need to take two courses, ALH 301 Global Health Engagement Seminar and ALH 401 Global Health Engagement Practicum.
